I always knew, deep down, that Google did not really want to be evil. Here is the evidence to prove it. Google vs. Big Cable, this will be interesting once it hits the courts.

Google, Best Buy, and Sony ally against Big Cable: “You know there’s going to be a showdown over some communications technology issue when Google, Best Buy, Mitsubishi, Sony, TiVo and two other big companies start a new group with the word ‘alliance’ in it. Sure enough, the septet has announced that they’ve united to defend the Federal Communications Commission‘s new proposal for an ‘AllVid‘ standard that would make it easier for consumers to watch both pay television and the video they get from their home broadband network on the same screen.”
